The YakAttack BlackPak crate system is poised to set a new standard in rod, tackle, and gear management on kayaks and standup paddleboards. It ships flat and assembles quickly using common hand tools. The interlocking joint design creates incredible strength, promising many years of trouble-free service. The clean, tactical appearance demands attention and the rapidly developing line of YakAttack BlackPak accessories means there's always another problem solving innovation just around the corner. The YakAttack BlackPak has stations for up to 10 rod holders, each of which can be installed vertically or angled. When 4 or more rod holders are used, they can be installed in the "high and dry" position, preventing unwanted seepage from a wet tank well. The top rails are configured to accept all YakAttack GearTrac or Mighty Mount compatible accessories. The lid is hinged and latched with elastic cord, and is designed for easy removal, allowing it to double as a bait board.

This really is a must have tool for your kayak! Very easy and simply to assemble. It's pretty amazing how much gear it can hold with the right tackle box system and accessories. Here's a short video on how I modded mine for max efficiency! http://youtu.be/Qv08-fD6Le8
YakAttack BlackPak has many predrilled holes, which doesn't match the same brand accessories. I had to drill holes to install YakAttack Gear Trac 12 inches on the top of the pack. The same with the Yak- Gear Build-A-Crate 3 Rod Holder installation.
Definitely nicer - but way more expensive - than a milk crate. Very sturdy and durable. I got some small felt pads to dampen the noise made by the lid. Easy to assemble and YakAttack uploaded a great helper video on YouTube. Has premarked spots for attaching gear tracks or other accessories.
The YackAttack logo is no longer engraved on the ACK version which is kind of a bummer. I was meticulous about putting the pak together but still ended up with the panel support screws bulging slightly out of the side panels. You can actually see where this is happening on the left hand side of AKC's stock photo if you magnify it, though theirs is very slight. Just cosmetic but still not something i was hoping for with gear this expensive. Lastly this thing is heavy! it weighs in a tiny bit over 10 lbs empty. ACK, like always, was super fast with shipping and they are always friendly every time I've interacted with them. I'm certainly proud to have their name on any gear I own.
